Parodies Gone Awry

I don't know whether to be proud or embarassed that the Oberlin administrations made a parody of Hangover.

The HangOber from Oberlin College on Vimeo.

It has great production values, mixed acting, and only a few decent jokes but overall disappointing writing.  Too much devotion to the source material?  That the President of the university played two parts pretty decently says good things.  Overall, I give then an A for effort, but only a B for the movie.  A's were not easy to get at Oberlin. 

Best line is towards the end, explaining why the Pres does not have a sunburn.
